Instructions

SIFT together flour, Nestle® Toll House® Baking Cocoa, 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt and baking powder. Stir, then set aside.

PLACE 1/2 cup butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar in a medium bowl. Beat with a hand mixer until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg and vanilla extract.

STIR in flour mixture, then stir in Nestlé Toll House Semi-Sweet Morsels.

CHILL dough for at least an hour or overnight.

PREHEAT oven to 325º F (300º F for convection ovens).

SCOOP 1 tablespoon of dough and roll into a ball. Place on a baking sheet and flatten with your palm. Repeat with the rest of the dough, spacing cookies 2 inches apart on the tray.

BAKE 12–14 minutes, or until cookies are set. Remove from oven and let cookies cool completely.

PLACE 1 cup butter, powdered sugar and 1 teaspoon kosher salt in a bowl.

BEAT with a hand mixer until fluffy. Beat in peppermint extract and 1/3 cup crushed candy canes.

SPREAD buttercream on the flat side of a cookie. Top with another cookie to make a sandwich. Roll the edges of the cookie in the remaining 1/3 cup crushed candy canes. Enjoy!
